The beginnings of my first solo trip

30 May

I have always wanted to travel around. Finally, I’ll get a chance in September when I head off to New Zealand and Australia. While I’m so excited, to the point where I can’t sleep because all I’m thinking of is this trip, I tiny part of me is also afraid. I’ve never done a solo trip this far – it’s literally on the other side of the world! I know Australia’s pretty safe, but still, the thought of travelling alone scares me a bit. This could either work out to be amazing or it could flop completely. I guess that’s normal and the fear won’t go away until I’m actually there. I imagine it’s like how I was terrified to start driving, but once I got used to it, it wasn’t so scary. Here’s to hoping things are like that. Still having second thoughts about this whole trip though. Maybe I shouldn’t go, maybe I should wait till I secure a full-time job, maybe I should go somewhere closer and cheaper. Maybe it’s one of those things where you just have to hold your breath and jump and hope you make the landing. It’ll be worth it, not scary at all, and probably the best trip I’ll have been on to date. Right? Right.

Beautiful Mess – Jason Mraz

You are strong but you’re needy,
Humble but you’re greedy
And based on your body language,
And shoddy cursive I’ve been reading
Your style is quite selective,
Though your mind is rather reckless
Well I guess it just suggests
That this is just what happiness is
